The son of a popular café owner has opened up a new bistro in Nailsea.
Gilly’s Café, in Nailsea High Street, sadly closed after years of trading in the town.
But Gilly’s son has now taken over the lease at 2 Kingshill and renamed it Gilly’s on the Hill.
Charlie’s company G Chu Catering Ltd has employed Gilly and Danny Chu and a number of staff from the former café to run the new eatery.
Charlie named his new bistro in honour of his mum’s cooking skills and standing in the community.

“Our son, Charlie Chu, has taken the lease at Kingshill and renamed the bistro Gilly’s on the Hill.
“The bistro is a huge success and has already taken on some new staff. Booking has become essential for weekend evenings and the diary is often full over a week in advance.”
Gilly’s on the Hill is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 11am-11pm for brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner and from noon to 6pm on Sundays for a traditional Sunday lunch.
The bistro has received rave reviews on Trip Advisor for the excellent food, service and relaxing atmosphere.
The menu changes monthly to give customers plenty of choice.
